    Wish Upon is dull because it never goes far enough to truly scare anyone.

    Amid all the high-speed action, this “Baby” is also spiked with humor. In large part that's thanks to Spacey and Foxx, as well as Jon Hamm, who makes the bank robber Buddy, one of his better movie roles. Having such strong actors also brings a gravitas to the story.

    You're also likely to be left wondering to what the "It" in the title actually refers.

    Further proving his mastery of creating tension and thrills, Scott has effectively created a satisfying hybrid of "Alien," "Prometheus" and even James Cameron's "Aliens."

    The awkward love triangle feels forced and unnecessary and distracts from and dilutes the power of the historic drama.

    Comparisons to the classic 1979 Oscar winner "Kramer vs. Kramer" are inevitable. But Gifted stands on its own because it feels more like reality than a Hollywood take on family crisis.

    While it offers some new ideas, the movie also suffers from the same pacing problems of the original.

    It’s a convoluted mess that zig-zags all over the map. On the plus side, there are enough jokes that connect to keep you along for the ride.

    If you loved the original movie, you might not care so much about being given warmed-over seconds. Otherwise, this Wick has burned itself out.

    Filmmaker F. Javier Gutiérrez really doesn't have a lot to work with beyond a flimsy story, weak script and characters you'll have a hard time caring about.

    The young cast is generally okay. The real pleasure is the rare appearance by Oscar winner Faye Dunaway, who plays as a woman who may know how to defeat this spirit.

    Blood Wars concludes with the threat of further sequels, but this is clearly one franchise that's been fully drained of its blood.

    Acclaimed filmmaker Ken Loach is a master at capturing the day-to-day of British life, and this film, which won the coveted Palm D'Or award at the Cannes Film Festival, is no exception. That said, it may be easier for some to decipher the heavy British accents than others.

    The acting offers little relief. Fassbender gives a super serious performance in a movie that needed his natural sense of humor. Playing his Abstergo doctor, Cotillard's accent is so bizarre and disconcerting, it's impossible to believe she’s the same actress who’s been so amazing in everything else she's done. As for Jeremy Irons, who plays her scientist father, it's hard to imagine this is anything more than a payday.

    The FBI once again calls upon Anthony Hopkins to help them find a serial killer in Solace. Even though he isn't playing Hannibal Lecter this time, he's still the best thing going for this mostly dull film.

    This is the kind of movie "Trolls" set out to be and with this kind of innovation in animation, it succeeds on far more levels as well. There are just so many laughs to be had but there's also plenty of warmth with a lot of focus put on each contestant's family.

    A lovely film and another impressive calling card for Bayona, who can mix genres in an innovative way like his former producer, Guillermo del Toro. He's created a deeply emotional film about loss that will probably have you crying by film's end.

    In some ways, Pesce's film is often more disturbing for what it doesn't show than what it does, with the last act probably the hardest to watch.

    If you enjoy slightly awkward romance during wartime, Allied is worth a fling.

    Billy Bob Thornton's grouchy Santa is finally back, but his sequel is pretty ho-ho-horrible.
    • 55 Metascore

    Trolls just feels very formulaic, and having a pop superstar like Timberlake in your voice cast, and deliberately not having him sing until near the end just seems like a waste of that talent.

    It's fair to say that Inferno won't be for everyone, but those who have stuck through Howard and Hanks' previous Dan Brown adaptations should find enough thrills to keep them interested in solving the mystery.
    • 84 Metascore

    The nearly three-hour runtime, though, may be one of the film's biggest hurdles. But the time seems necessary for a story that adds more layers the further we're taken down the rabbit hole.

    With all the action movies that have come before, it's tough to make car chases and fist fights seem original and exciting, but fortunately, there's enough of a story to keep things interesting even when you might feel a sense of déjà vu.

    Ouija: Origin of Evil offers some easy scares and cheesy fun, but if nothing else, it gets points for not losing sight of its characters amidst those scares.
    • 51 Metascore

    Some of the characters' fate might be left in a frustratingly open-ended fashion, but Cuéron has created an impressive edge-of-your-seat thriller set within a fantastic outdoors environment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Douglas
    Despite the movie's darker tone, there's still room for humor when you have rooms full of diplomats and scientists discussing how to contend with a "giant unidentified creature."

    An even bigger crime is that Blair Witch isn’t particularly scary, maybe because it’s hard to take any of it seriously when it’s just treading so much similar ground as the first movie.
    • 74 Metascore

    What makes Southside With You work so beautifully is that it could be a romantic comedy about two strangers, but because the characters are based on two people we feel we know pretty well, it adds another layer to the unfolding relationship drama.
    • 71 Metascore

    With his second film, Alvarez has mastered the tension of Hitchcock and the misdirection of a magician, proving himself to be a filmmaker of merit even when dealing with more realistic horrors.
